Solskjaer: Pogba one of the best midfielders in the world

19 Feb 2019, 09:00

Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Paul Pogba is one of the best-attacking midfielders in the world following his performance in the FA Cup fifth-round victory at Chelsea.

United star Pogba scored a goal and set up another as he was named the man of the match in Monday's impressive 2-0 win away to Chelsea.

Pogba teed up Herrera for the opening goal in the 31st minute before the World Cup winner got on the scoresheet with a towering header on the stroke of half-time and Solskjaer was ecstatic about the Frenchman.

Best Player

"He had a tough game against PSG but he was probably our best player then. He had two or three players around him all the time. Tonight [Monday] was a great response, playing against one of the best defensive midfielders in the world with [N'Golo] Kante next to him.

"We know he's one of the best-attacking midfielders in the world. He has a vision, so the cross for Ander's goal was fantastic. Then the way he plays the ball out to Marcus [Rashford] and gets into the box for the second was fantastic, too," Solskjaer said.

The 25-year-old, who was sent off against Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of the Champions League last-16 tie, has been directly involved in 15 goals since Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho in December scoring nine goals and tallying six assists.
